Before she became a teenager, Elizabeth Taylor was already a star, appearing in such films as Lassie Come Home and National Velvet. One of the few child actors to transition to a successful film career as an adult, Taylor starred in such classics as Father of the Bride, A Place in the Sun, and Who' s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? In addition to receiving two Academy Awards, Taylor led a tumultuous personal life that kept her in the headlines for decades. Her many marriages, most notably twice to Richard Burton, received tabloid attention and made her the fodder for countless magazine articles the public couldn' t get enough of. Here is the unauthorized biography of one of America's brightest— and most flamboyantly glamorous— stars. Biographer Kitty Kelley tells all— even the parts Liz would rather have kept secret— in this uncensored account of a Hollywood' s icon.
